The Star Wars Celebration in Orlando announced today the newest novel helping lead up to The Last Jedi. The Lucasfilm Publishing Writers' roundtable in Orlando announced a story centered around Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie in the movies, is slated to release in September. It is intended to help prepare fans for the movie - hence the book's series name "Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi."
The book is to be written by Delilah S. Dawson, who previously wrote the short stories "The Secret Weapon" telling adventures leading up to The Force Awakens.
In case you missed it, the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi also released today. December can't get here soon enough! For the impatient, hopefully this September release will help add to the hype.
